Last 4 keepers

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Last 4 keepers

Postby Chilly » Sun Feb 03, 2019 9:13 pm

12 team 5x5 roto keepers league, keep 15, start C,1B,2B,3B,SS,IF,4OF,DH,5SP,3RP,1P. Set lineups weekly, start season with 2 Free Agent pickups and gain another every 2 weeks. I think our format leans towards keeping more elite SP, as we can't stream with the limited FA pickups.

I've asked for a lot of help on various trades the last couple weeks (Ohtani trade fell through, JD MArtinez for Kluber is trade, he would not take Verlander to help me with salaries, and so I found a trade for cheap Suarez which gives me other options).

My 11 Keepers set in stone
1B – Hoskins (1B/OF)
2B - Albies
3B - Arenado
SS - Lindor
IF - Machado (3B/SS)
OF - Benintendi, Meadows
DH - Senzel
SP - Verlander, Nola, Berrios
RP -

Option 1
OF - Dahl
SP - Kluber, Mikolas, R. Lopez

Option 2
OF - JD Martinez, Dahl
SP - Mikolas, R. Lopez

Option 3
OF - Dahl
SP - Kluber, Suarez
RP - Leclerck

Option 4
OF - JD Martinez, Dahl
SP - Suarez
RP - Leclerck

Option 5
OF - JD Martinez
SP - Mikolas, R. Lopez
RP - Leclerck

Option 1 is what my team will be with no trades. Really like the idea of keeping lots of Elite/Quality SP, but don't like going into the draft without an RP. Happy with bats overall.

Option 2 - Swap out Kluber for JD Martinez. Bats become Elite. SP, takes a hit though and still no closer.

Option 3 - Replace Mikolas/Lopez with Leclerck/Suarez. SP takes a little hit, but I get to go into the draft with a closer.

Option 4 - I do both trades and improve bats with JD Martinez, but SP takes a hit with no Kluber, Mikolas, Lopez. But I go into draft with closer.

Option 5 - Option 2, but replace Lecrerck with Dahl since I now have JD.

Which option would you go with and why?
12 team 5x5 Roto Keeper League - Potential Keepers (Must keep 15 with salary cap of $320)
1B - Rizzo $28
2B - Murphy (1B,2B) $17
3B - Machado $28
SS - Lindor $18
IF - Arenado $24
OF (4) Harper $40, Springer $30, Marte $30
Bench -
ML - Brinson (OF) $6, Zimmer (OF) $9

SP (5) - Lester $30, Greinke, $27, Archer $26, Carrasco $25, Quintana $21, Hill $15, Rodon $15, Ray $15
RP (3) - Giles $18
P -
Bench -
ML - Stephenson $7

Option 2

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
